False accusations of rape
I think being accused of rape when one is innocent is as bad as being rapedI think *not*. Let's put it this way, of what other crime would you say something similar?
"Being accused of murder when one is innocent is as bad as being murdered."
"Being accused of beating someone to a bloody pulp when one is innocent is as bad as being beaten to a bloody pulp."
"Being accused of kidnapping when one is innocent is as bad as being kidnapped."
"Being accused of theft when one is innocent is as bad as being robbed."
"Being accused of plagiarism when one is innocent is as bad as being plagiarized."
The last one starts to come close to what you're talking about -- but notice that for plagiarism and the accusation, neither side is actually physically hurt: both the crime and the false accusation are about issues of repute and honor. Rape is a *physical assault* -- of course it's worse than a false accusation. The only possible reason to say that a false accusation is "as bad as rape" is if you take a really old-fashioned patriarchal approach, and say that the crime of rape is really against the honor and property value belonging to the raped woman's owner (husband, father, brother). In that case, rape *is* much more like theft or plagiarism: an attack on something that belongs to you, but not a direct attack on your person, the body where your self lives.
To equate rape and false accusation like that makes the actual woman and her actual suffering unimportant, and makes it seem as though she is not a real person, not as real as a man.
